Strawberry Saturday-Rustic But Delicious

Made and served this about a month ago.  End of semester means behind in so many ways including writing anything on this.

Strawberry Season has presented a challenge–how many different ways I can use them before they spoil.When sick last year Mrs. LaVonne (my mother-in-law) and Fred brought me a set of Fine Cooking magazines to read and my favorite recipe based on looks was the Rustic Strawberry Tart (September 2000, pg. 52).  I love anything that is at its core pie. So much so that I’m pretty sure I could go without cake the rest of my life.  I saw that recipe and then Carrie sent this recipe to me.  I took it as a sign that this needed to be made.

This recipe at the height of strawberry season with a little extra tart from blackberries made for a very happy table. I also love that this is a recipe with which the finished project can look ugly.  The jagged edges and less than symmetrical look just add character.

Time to Jam

Strawberries in season means it’s time to jam.  After running (okay mostly walking) at the Pine Cone Pacer, I bought delicious strawberries from the Durham’s Farmers Market.

Strawberries Saturday and on Sunday Heavenly Jam.
